- Summary: [Playstation Network] The swashbuckling action in Ratchet & Clank Future: Quest for Booty begins one year following the intense ending in Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction. Ratchet's desperate search for Clank resumes with a bang as he finds himself engulfed in ship-board combat -- only to be cast adrift and washed up on the shores of a remote island on the planet Merdegraw. Our Lombax hero must overcome life-threatening challenges, encounter hostile new alien races and even form an allegiance with dreaded Captain Slag’s first mate, Rusty Pete. All in the pursuit of clues that lead Ratchet to the treasure of Captain Angstrom Darkwater, Slag's former commander and keeper of the only known link to the mysterious Zoni: the Fulcrum Star. Push, pull, and manipulate objects as you solve various puzzles using Ratchet's new wrench. New Light/Dark gameplay: Illuminate dark areas and use your wits to survive encounters with enemies that live in the dark. New Pirate Puzzles: Mix brew, manipulate shadows, and play tunes to find hidden booty. [SCEA]… Expand
ScottE10Everything that makes Ratchet and Clank great is still here in this bite-sized portion. The humor, the great characters, the voice acting and of course, the fun! It's a short adventure, but it's great if you just want some classic R&C action without having to commit to a 20 hour quest. Very highly recommended, to fans and newcomers alike.… Expand
SandyM.6Quest for Booty is a shallow extension of Tools of Destruction. The core of what makes the Ratchet and Clank games great is still there and still I recommend this for any R&C fan. Where old R&C fans will be disappointed is there is very little gameplay beyond the first play through and said gameplay is very linear. There are almost no hidden collectibles besides a few weapon power-ups. Gone is the ability to revisit levels to find hidden bolts or earn skill points.… Expand
seppohelava0Without question the worst-ever installment of the series. Beyond the astonishing brevity of the game, large sections of the game are played almost completely in the dark, where you can't see anything at all.
The story is pointless, the weapons are utterly boilerplate for a Ratchet game (and almost completely generic even for any other game), it has almost no humor or charm, and again, the object manipulation and "light/dark" gameplay is so tedious and awful, it ruins the game. The last level prior to the final battle is one of the worst levels I've ever seen, in more than 25 years of gaming.
It's awful. Just awful, from top to bottom. I loved the first five games, but this one has no redeeming value at all. Between this, and the equally awful Resistance 2, I'm rapidly losing faith in Insomniac. I really don't want to - I loved Ratchet, and I really hope that a Crack in Time just pretends this pile of garbage never existed at all.… Expand
